Tyler Perry's Madea is the real Black Swan?

Feb. 1, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Alright, I'm sorry for what I'm about to do, as surely you're going to have nightmares about what you see here. In a bizarre effort to promote his new Madea film, Tyler Perry has turned to the critical acclaimed BLACK SWAN for poster inspiration.

The iconic one-sheet is one of the more memorable things about that film and I guess Madea is hoping it has the same effect for her. I'll be damned if I can't scrub this image out of my brain though.

I actually thought that Tyler Perry was literally making a Black Swan spoof with Madea when I first saw this, which would have ramped the insanity dial up to 11. Thankfully it's just promotion for MADEA'S BIG HAPPY FAMILY which should feature all your typical fatsuit tomfoolery the drones who keep paying for these movies are used to.

@HercZanzibar - No, we don't get it because this poster makes no sense. He's making fun of a movie that has a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT audience than what Madea has. Do you HONESTLY think that "Middle aged black women" give a shit about Black Swan?

Now, if he wanted to make fun of another movie, make fun of "Big Mamma's Like Father Like Son" (dumbest fucking title in the world, btw, but I guess that fits).

So many haters! Seriously, have any of you ever even SEEN Tyler Perry's movies? "Tyler Perry's Big Happy Family" isn't even ABOUT Madea, though she does appear in it. I saw a copy of the play, and it's actually VERY good. I don't want to say that maybe it's just that people don't get it because it's a "black" thing, but it just looks like it so much. This is a very heartfelt and real story, which I can't wait to see on the big screen. I think even Tyler Perry haters out there should go

Seriously, stop just hating on the man for no reason, and actually WATCH the stuff. If you haven't, then kindly shut up.

I'm black, I've seen more than enough of Tyler Perry. He's a terrible writer, mediocre director, and anyone who produces those fucking shows he does should be shot in the face for setting black people back 50 years.

Someone explain to me why this crap appeals to people? This is what, the fifth Madea movie? Do people actually go to watch these films? I understand Tyler Perry appeals to a certain audience, but seriously, this is a terrible character and it needs to be laid to rest. Maybe in this film Madea gets a heart attack and dies. Oh, and using the poster of a movie that's actually good....big no no.

Maybe they can do an Inception spoof: Tyler Perry's mind is the scene of the crime.
Or a Social Network spoof. Tyler Perry's face with the tagline "You don't get to a few friends without making 500 million enemies." Hey hollywood, can I have a job now?

Shuckin' & Jivin' under the guise of religion; if it quacks its still a duck. Spike Lee was ahead of his time when he made BAMBOOZLED, its a perfect example of the Tyler Perry franchise.

What the fuck even is this shit? Seriously, I have no idea who or what I'm looking at.

Oh okay, I looked him up. Now, as much as I think Spike Lee needs to chill the fuck out, I love how he called Perry's work 'coonery and buffoonery.'

Its funny how everyone is fliping out over this... he's not spoofing the movie, its just an image. People photoshop stuff all the time. He's not making fun of the movie yet everyone is acting like he offended them. I know this poster isn't even funny but have a sense of humor.

Perry's Madea is one of the most racist and dumb things to have ever happened to anything, anytime, anywhere. I fucking hope this movie flops and the stupid masses wake up to how awful (almost*) all his shit is.

*'Daddy's Little Girls' wasn't too terrible.

That's always been my thought on it. I'm not sure why the black community seems to be so supportive of someone who is doing nothing but furthering racial stereotypes.

To answer jnix8808: Where did you get your information/sweeping generalization that EVERYONE who happens to be black is supporting Tyler Perry?

I would never make a sweeping statement that "all" black people like/dislike anything. I work with three who hate Tyler Perry. What I meant by that was that I was surprised anyone in the black community would support someone hinging whole movies on stereotypes. It seems self-defeating.

Tyler Perry is the biggest troll. I give him props. He hasn't ruined any already-established franchises or anything. Brett Ratner still lives!

The biggest troll is Armond White, followed by Uwe Boll. Perry is just an idiot that stumble onto something so remarkably offensive people liked it. I don't understand it. I hope the man stops making movies and writing plays, he's awful.

I don't get it. What does Madea being "the real black swan" have to do with the movie? Doesn't make any fucking sense.

Also, @Smiert Spionam - Really dude? Joke or no joke that shit's fucked up. If the dude bothers you that much, you have some issues to work out.

Yes, he does bother me that much. Do you know what its like to be an aspiring black screenwriter and to have this fucking guy be the current most successful/talked about one? Do you know how much harder I'm gonna have to work to overcome the bad taste left in most people's mouths by this hack?

Doubt it.

Actually, I'm a struggling screenwriter myself, and Race has NOTHING to do with it. There's black hacks, white hacks, mexican hacks, Asian hacks, etc etc. The industry is FILLED WITH HACKS. Get over it, WORK HARD, and write something of quality.

I agree he's a hack. I dont like him as a writer, but he is a damn good business man. He found a niche and he capitalized on it -- something not easy these days to do.

But EITHER WAY, wishing a horrible, NON CUREABLE disease on someone is fucked up,

That's why I don't like your comment. You sound like a big douche.

Besides, you should stop posting on Joblo and go WRITE if you want to be a screenwriter.

awesome, i cant wait for the inevitable Scarface parody and the Tron parody. i've hate on Perry enough for 3 lifetimes so i'm going to avoid hating him for now, but whoever decided this was a good ad campaing should be hit in the balls with a moving car. If it happens to be Perry then i guess its just win win.
